Hi, my name is Lewis Herbert

Thank you so much for visiting my site.

During 2015 we raised enough money for my dream of a wheelchair accessible/sensory garden at home. My garden is now fully completed and it is absolutely amazing. I can now access my garden in my wheelchair and spend quality time together with my Mummy, Daddy, sister and brother all together in our back garden, something which I have never been able to do in the past.  

Thank you so much to each and everyone of you who donated towards my new garden it's absolutely amazing. You have all been so kind and generous towards me and my whole family and I will be eternally grafeful to you all. There are far too many people to thank individually on here but you know who you are, and so do we!.

My Mummy and Daddy have decided to continue fundraising for me as unfortunately due to my complex disability I am always going to need various items and equipment which isn't available to me through standard NHS provision. The majority of the items which I will need are a necessity due to my extremely complex disability and condition.

Raising money for various disability specific items and equipment Life for Lewis Appeal

Items currently raising funds for:

  • A deposit for a suitable wheelchair accessible and fully adapted Motability vehicle = £12,000.00 approx cost
  • Eye gaze communication system - including look to learn and Sensory Eye FX software (Includes a laptop, touch screen and mounting trolley on wheels) = £4000.00 approx cost
  • We are currently trying to raise funds for a deposit for a suitable wheelchair accessible Motability vehicle which will be fully adapted and converted to Lewis' complex needs.
  • We are also trying to raise money for an Eye gaze communication system for Lewis to use at home. This would enable him to activate sensory cause and effect software using his eyes, with the long term aim of him being able to communicate basic words and his needs to us by selecting symbols with his eyes on the screen.

    I would be so very grateful if you were able to help me try and reach my current targets and dreams.
